Capricorns are many things, but sentimental is def not one of them. While you can always depend on those born between Dec. 22 and Jan. 19 to get things done and get that bread, you can't always depend on the goats of the zodiac to get too lovey-dovey with you. However, that doesn't means Caps aren't capable of love — they just tend to show their love in...
unconventional ways. Goats are much more likely to deliver tough love than touchy-feely advice, and your fave Capricorn celebrities' quotes about love prove it.
For this Earth sign, realism always trumps idealism. Rather than hooking up and moving on, Caps strive to find someone with whom they can build a life, and they know that's likely going to take compromise and sacrifice. (Luckily, goats are
never afraid of a little hard work.) Even while they strive to help their partners reach higher and budget better, Caps always know how to prioritize their own needs and wants, because they recognize the power of self-love. A love affair with a Capricorn may not be the most exciting adventure, but these quotes from Capricorn A-listers show why Caps are some of the best lovers around.

Kate Middleton Says Bad Times Make Your Love Grow Stronger
WPA Pool/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images I think, if you do go out with someone for quite a long time, you do get to know each other very, very well.
